One of the ECC's top athletes is Loveland senior Kaitlyn Andrews, an all-star in both soccer and track. In soccer, Kaitlyn was a team captain and a three-year varsity starter, including being a member of the 2017 Loveland team that won the Ohio Div. I state championship.
This season, Kaitlyn scored five goals with a league-leading 13 assists for 23 points for the 16-4-0 district champs and regional runners-up. Her 37 career assists ranks her third (tie) all-time in school history. A memorable moment this season was when she scored the only goal in the 1-0 sectional championship win vs. Mason.
Kaitlyn this season was named 1st team all-ECC for the second straight year. She was also earned 1st team all-city, 1st team all-SWO District and 2nd team all-Ohio honors. "Kaitlyn is a tremendous overall athlete and soccer player," says soccer coach Todd Kelly. "Her speed is exceptional and makes her lethal on the offensive end and almost impossible to defend with one player."
Kaitlyn also plays for the Cincinnati Development Academy club team. Last July, she participated in the Allstate All-American cup game in Orlando, televised on ESPNU.
An all-state academic performer who is active in community service, she will play soccer next year at the University of Cincinnati.
Her favorite athlete is Alex Morgan, favorite entertainer is Post Malone, favorite book is The Glass Castle, favorite movie is Avengers: Endgame and most-like-to-meet is John Mulaney.
COACH'S QUOTE – "Kaitlyn is an incredible student and respectful teammate and despite her tremendous accomplishments (state championship in soccer), she is an even better young lady. I can't wait to see all she accomplishes, and I know without a doubt she will continue to make us proud at UC and beyond."
— Todd Kelly, Soccer Coach
